Today, although the rivalry is generally shown only during sporting events there remains an 'unspoken' friendly rivalry between residents that remains on a subtle level.During the first week of March, 1895 a team of Calgarians mostly from the Calgary Fire Brigade's hockey club, traveled to Edmonton to play against a Mounted Police team from Fort Saskatchewan and the Edmonton Thistles shutting out both.

By the 1810s, explorer Peter Fidler identified the Battle River as a disputed frontier between the two groups.Edmonton's business community contains more private corporations working in oil and gas, consulting and smaller operations.Edmonton is also the research and manufacturing centre of the Canadian petroleum industry, and roughly 80% of Canada's oil production is sent to market through Refinery Row, located just east of the city in Strathcona County.Calgary's nearby Turner Valley deposits were discovered in 1914, decades before Edmonton's Leduc #1 field in 1947.This in part accounts for the much larger concentration of head offices of large corporations in Calgary.
